      Hello!

      Should I bet the turn in this situation? I called his minraise on the flop with the assumption that he might bluff with a draw. Since the turn didn't improve draws and he checked to me, I think that I should bet. At that point, I wasn't sure what he might have, so I played "way ahead/way behind" (I was scared that he really might have a straight). What do you think?

      If players usually check turn then they are giving up or at least c/c with worse hands so I´d prefer betting turn 2/3 pot and another 1/2 pot on the river for value
      Your KK should be ahead enough times

      At this case you lost minimum, but generally he has there worse hands that would call you down
